After five years' new research in archives from Petersburg to Odessa, Sebag Montefiore shows how Potemkin and Catherine the Great, with their younger lovers, created their own "family." He blazingly brings to life Potemkin's loving partnership with Catherine and restores him to his place as a colossus of the eighteenth century. Includes an Index.
